Spring Engineering Services Ltd is a specialist precision engineering business that has been based in Brucefield Industrial Estate, Livingston since 2001. The business trades as Ritchie Precision and currently have a full-time headcount of 36 staff.
Nick Sommerville from Spring Engineering said:
“Our recent support from the Jobs Task Force was invaluable in helping us scale up and meet new demands of significant new orders for medical device parts to the USA.”
Spring Engineering Services has achieved significant growth over the past five years; this has predominately been driven by exports to the USA. The company has worked closely on its growth plans with West Lothian Council’s Business Gateway team. Grant support of £60,000 from the Jobs Task Force has helped Spring to invest in building more production capacity at their site and create 12 new higher-value roles.
The business has also benefitted from consultancy support through the Expert Help scheme. There has been joined-up support from Scottish Enterprise to further assist with the company’s growth.
